What should I expect for my mobile spray tan?

Mobile tans are quick and easy, and the best part is you don’t even have to leave your home. Coastal glow will bring a pop-up tent, we will need 5x5 space preferably near an outlet and a room with good lighting. From there we will decide on the best solution and/or tone for you. We are usually in and out within 30 mins when clients are prepped and ready to go. Leaving you with that perfect luxury tan you needed.

How do I prepare for my spray tan?

EXFOLIATE 24 hours before with an oil- free body scrub. After showering DO NOT apply lotions, oils, or perfumes. Use deodorant sparingly.

 

Shaving should be done 12 hours before your spray tan. Streaks may be an issue in your final results if you shave right before.

 

Manis, pedis, facials, waxing should all be done prior to your spray tan. 

How long will my spray tan last?

Your spray tan should last about 5-10 days depending on your skin type and how well you take care of your sunless tan. Why does it only last that long? Our Dolce Glow solution contains 90% natural raw ingredients, that’s the reason why it only lasts for so long. But maintenance plays a part in this timeline as well. 

How long until I can rinse?

Refrain from showering 6-8 hours minimum, overnight is best. Do not leave on longer than 12 hours. This can cause over dehydration in the skin which can lead to the snake/spotty skin. Your first shower post spray tan should be just a rinse (NO SOAP). Pat yourself dry with a soft towel afterwards. You will notice the temporary bronzer washing away, leaving your skin with a natural glow. 

Is it safe to tan during pregnancy or while breast feeding?

Yes, but we do advise that you consult with your doctor first. New mamas be cautious with carrying your baby right after the tan as the bronzer can get on the baby. For mothers breast feeding, it is recommended to spray tan with a full coverage bra. 

Can I still tan outside after getting a spray tan?

Absolutely! Just remember the solution does not contain any UV protection/ sunscreen. We recommend using a water-based SPF over your spray tan which will allow you to still develop a tan naturally while keeping your skin protected. 

What do I wear during my sunless tan?

Female clients may choose to tan in whatever you feel comfortable in… bikini, underwear/bra, topless or nude. Male clients must wear undergarment/bathing suit. Please keep in mind the solution will get on any garment worn so wearing dark will be best. The solution will also come out once washed. *Under 18 years old must wear bikini/undergarments

What should I wear after my spray tan?

After you receive your spray tan, you will want to put on dark loose clothing (sundress, loose tank top and sweatpants are the best option) with flip flops. Avoid wearing bra, socks, leggings or other restrictive clothing. The looser fit the better to avoid any streaking as the tan is developing. 

Can I work out after my spray tan?

Please refrain from any activities that will cause perspiration until after your first rinse.

Can I spray tan with a sunburn?

NO! We do not advise having a spray tan over peeling skin. The full peel and healing process can take anywhere between 3-6 weeks. You will have to reschedule your appointment if you are peeling.

Can my teenager tan?

Only with parent’s consent.

How do I maintain my spray tan?

We recommend keeping yourself hydrated, moisturize twice a day (avoid any moisturizers with AHA which promotes exfoliation and DHA that has self-tanner and can potentially cause yellow tone), avoid long baths & showers.
